Form & Verdict

Point' winner last year was second in a Cork bumper before getting a break; won a Punchestown maiden hurdle (2m4f) on second start in this discipline; looked like he would improve from that but there are mixed messages from the form and this is tougher.

Form & Verdict

Failed to win a bumper but improved for going hurdling and up in trip; backed up Clonmel maiden (beating Corbetts Cross) with an emphatic success at Fairyhouse, both approx 2m4f and there with every chance when a faller three out here last time back at 2m; upped further in trip here and good chance of staying; diverted from Cheltenham which could prove a wise move.

Useful in 2m-2m6f novice hurdles last term, recording RPRs of 140 on three occasions; has not taken to chasing at all well this season, soundly beaten three times, and was sold from Gordon Elliott for 50,000euros in February; may be revived by a change of scenery and the return to hurdling, but he's something of a risky proposition in his first handicap.

Form & Verdict

French-bred made winning debut in 2m Limerick maiden in January despite looking in need of further; bare form of that doesn't amount to much but could be an altogether different beast now upped in trip and has to command respect from this yard.

Form & Verdict

Second runner for yard; gave Eye Van 8lb and was all out to beat him by half length in a Clonmel maiden hurdle (2m3f) in December; was found to be blowing hard when tailed-off in a Thurles novice subsequently but if he is restored to his best has a major shout here.
